Exploring the Currier Inside Out: Andrew Witkin, Among Others
Jan. 11, 2014 May 11, 2014
Two years ago, the Currier Museum gave contemporary artist Andrew Witkin the unique opportunity to explore and consider the Currier’s collection, archive and library holdings. The result of that invitation will yield a series of installations throughout the museum intended to give visitors new ways of thinking about historical material and their experiences in museums. The exhibition also explores changes in museum practices and how knowledge shifts over time, opening up the Currier and the stories it tells to re-examination. Witkin is working with many collaborators on this project, including New Hampshire Furniture Master Tom McLaughlin, who is fabricating all the furniture featured in the exhibition.
This exhibition is part of the Contemporary Connections series, which features new work by early- and mid-career artists and invites visitors to experience artistic perspectives that expand on the Currier’s collections, architecture, regional history and/or local geography.
The Currier’s presentation of Exploring the Currier Inside Out: Andrew Witkin, Among Others is generously supported by the NBT Fund.
